Better than my last squig but still somewhat off. There's something about the squig anatomy I don't seem to get.
Suit up! /
Remember when I said that sometimes I'd take a sketch and if I particularly liked it or felt inspired by it I would make a piece of artwork from it?
Well, here's the first example of what I mean. I'm probably going to get this printed on canvas and framed so I can start decorating my office at work with my own art.
This is the original sketch if you don't remember:
So let me connect the dots for you:
If you submit an idea to me for a sketch and I do it, there's a chance that I'll push the idea further into a piece of art. This means I take your idea and make it into a drawing or painting. Should that happen, I feel it's only fair that I should somehow make a copy of that piece available to you. Perhaps as a print or as a digital file or whatever makes the most sense for the piece itself.
@jfdubeau on Twitter to submit ideas.
Can't just draw babes in sexy battle armor. Gotta learn how to illustrate the common man too.
I thought drawing a squig would be more fun.
Still in cartoon mode. Trying to find something generic but fun and happy to paint for my office.
My other illustration project is coming along. Should have something final by the end of the week.
After a lack-luster sketch such as yesterday's, it's nice to do something as simple as a cartoon fish. Restores a little bit of confidence.
Today I climbed a small mountain, mowed a huge lawn, flew an RC plane for the first time and painted models. I was hoping it wouldn't keep me from doing a decent sketch but...
Well, you be the judge.
Reminder: you can make sketch requests on Twitter @jfdubeau, #sketchaday
Sometimes I make real artwork from cool sketches. So there's that.
First; our sketch. Kronk. Enough said I think.
Second; I've decided to take one of my sketch and make an honest to Kronk piece of art. I've redrawn it, inked it and scanned it. I'll be coloring the piece in Photoshop, the printing it on canvas and framing it.
I'll post pics as the work progresses.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that sketching is about experimenting and that not all experiments can be successes.
I have so many idea for webcomics that I'll never find the time to do.
